So I am sitting here at 10:30 pm and have just sent the kids to bed. I'm supposed to be getting them to bed earlier since school starts in a week but don't seem to be very successful. I'm pretty tired myself and think I will actually make it to bed tonight before midnight. I thought I would jot a few things on here before I do. I am listening to JackFM online and it is one of my fav radio stations. "Hotel California" is playing right now...how lucky am I?! I don't know why I feel the urgent need to stay up so late nowadays. When bedtime rolls around (anytime between 10 pm and 12 am), I'm watching tv or playing a comp game and my head says that I should go to bed. But my stubborn side says, "No, you don't HAVE to. Stay up a while longer." Then a while longer becomes 3 or 4 am. I drag myself to bed reluctantly and can't fall asleep for almost 20 minutes. FYI, I never have trouble falling asleep...until lately. I can usually lay down and be out in 5 minutes, at the longest. I like being alone when everyone else is asleep and I can watch tv, eat, or surf the internet without someone needing something or wanting my attention. It's become a very bad habit though. I wake up late and feel crappy most of the day. Common sense says to just go to bed. I think I may listen to it tonight.
I was remembering back in junior high, hanging out with my friend Brandy. She was the best. I used to spend the night at her house a lot. Her mom was really cool and she always had lots of candy around the house. We would lock ourselves in Brandy's room, listen to music on her huge stereo, eat candy and talk on the phone to whomever we were dating at the time. One night, we invited some of our guy friends over and they snuck in the window. We hung out until like 6 am and they tried to sneak back out. But when they did, the geniuses walked right in front of her mom's bedroom window and she saw them. We were SO busted. I couldn't hang out with Brandy for like 2 weeks. Her mom thought we were having sex in there...we SO weren't, so don't worry mom, fam, and anyone else out there reading this. AHHH....the many memories that you will always remember and hope your parents never do.
